Bechtler By Night: Opera Recycles

LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

FRIDAY, AUGUST 17 FROM 5 - 9 P.M.

BECHTLER BY NIGHT

The artwork on view at the Bechtler is meant to be shared with the entire community, and the museum delivers on that commitment by opening the galleries for free to the public every third Friday of the month. Combine that with interactive art activities, games, live entertainment and a full bar and you’ve got Bechtler By Night!

Opera Carolina's Opera Recycles program will bring fun and fashion to the Bechtler during the August edition of Bechtler By Night. Gorgeous and intricate dresses are hand-made from unused Opera Carolina marketing materials, giving them a vibrant new life. Don't miss these extravagant creations, as well as the Bechtler galleries, free to the public from 5-9 p.m.!

Bechtler By Night lets you experience the museum galleries for free from 5-9 p.m. every third Friday of the month. Gather friends and view the extensive Bechtler collection under the cover of the night sky!
